we were very lucky in seeing 2 sets of lions. The second family was 5 lions who had just eaten and we could therefore see them very close up. Following the vultures we saw the kill as well and the vultures feeding. We saw many hippos and many other animals as well

The water doesn't seem to have arrived this year (2016) so this was more dryland than wetland, nonetheless there was lots to see on the river channel that formes the Namibian/Botswanan border. Still a very wild area where a 4x4 is essential, since the tracks are basic and (in the dry) sand pits. Large elephant herds, Letchwe and other antelope... More

Might have just been a bad time of year (July) but we drove around for hours with very few game sightings. Mahango proved to be a better option

When we visited, we did not encounter another human being - only wildlife which was plentiful tho' without our guide, we would probably have missed quite a bit. If self driving, use GPS.

As all the park in Caprivi Malili as well as Babwata offers a huge variety of birds, but even spectaculars sundowners and sunset... it worths a stop at this national park

The camping at Rupara community campsite is great. The national park drive also good, we did not see a lot of animals, but it is a really great place to visit, there is allso a more expensive private campsite.

Namibia collects all the possible landscaper you can imagine: see, dunes, mountains, deserts, salted pans, bushlands and Mamili is the wetland. Not so famous as Botswana's Okavango delta, less touristic, but really beautiful!

People got lost whilst we were there and this did not bode well. Had to do some river crossings which, if you are one vehicle, test the path first, then cross. Intersting Fauna... More
